Good news. If we are going to go after Big Tech for this it has to be done at the state level. The Feds are never going to act against this.
Indiana Attorney General to Probe Whether Big Tech is is Limiting Conservative Content
Interesting. I have to say I agree with much of this. There is a concerted effort by the Davos crowd to create this Brave New World and the public is walking dutifully forward.

In the era of feminist activism, 'believe all women' and gender quotas, professor Janice Flamengo presents an interesting monologue.
Flamengo looks at 'damselling'. A term describing women who claim to be feminists, or who demand equality, who then 'damsell', because they are 'fragile' females, to evoke empathy and chivalry.
If a man acted in the same way they would be considered weak, and unworthy of a position of responsibility or authority.
When women were fighting for equal rights, including the right to vote, they were told by leading female commentators they could retain the special 'protected' status of females, or they could have equality. They couldn't have both. But Flamengo says in general, women appear to have achieved both.
As usual Flamengo includes historical and contemporary references.
Women said that a right to vote would end all wars because war is a male generated result. There has been no indication that prediction came true. There are women and there are women. Think Maggie Thatcher and Jacinda Ardern. Just like there's Donald Trump and Justin Trudeau.
It would be interesting to see how chivalry has changed over the years. Flamengo reminds us that when the Titanic sank in April 1912 women's protected status saved many of their lives.
A total of 74% of the women survived as opposed to just 20% of the men. Men gave up seats in life boats to women because the shame of breaching the rules of chilvalry would have been greater than their life was worth.
I'm not sure, but I suspect 'damselling' only works in politics for attractive females. Or perhaps doesn't work for those with the wrong political stripes.
I don't think it helped conservative Defence Minister Linda Reynolds when she teared up in parliament recently. Or Liberal MP Nicolle Flint who has been savagely harrassed by right wing activists with little empathy coming from the media or the left.
There's no doubt though that claims of bullying, harrassment, life and family choices, and emotional distress from women in public life evoke much more sympathy than it does for men. That fact protects women from the same rigorous scrutiny and treatment that men receive in public life.
I know shrinking violets Hillary Clinton and Julia Gillard were keen to claim victim status. But whatever they experienced in public life was nothing compared to conservative male political leaders such as Donald Trump and Tony Abbott.
In general, I think the conclusion that women have achieved both equality and retained their protected status is accurate.The Near Irresistible Lure of Damseling
I've been saying that for years. Women want to be in the thick of things, at the heads of corporations and running government agencies and the like, but then hide behind the "little girl" status when it suits them. (Well, some do, not all.) You aren't supposed to be able to have your cake and eat it too. But that's exactly what we see in the world today. And I think deep down many women realize this, which makes them feel they haven't achieved equality - because they haven't. Someone is only equal when they are treated the same as everybody else.
Oh, and Rush Limbaugh had a bit about making an elite military squad of women "the All American First Cavalry Amazon Battalion". As he understood women are in many ways more vicious and cutthroat then men.

I have no strong opinions on Derek Chauvin's guilt or innocence in the death of George Floyd, but the latest testimony in the trial is very revealing. If you are willing to move beyond the widely-viewed video which suggested Chauvin's knee was on Floyd's neck (turns out even witnesses for the prosecution now admit it wasn't), read this legal analysis of the latest testimonies. Sounds to me like Chauvin will be found not guilty. It doesn't really matter, though, because -- either way -- I suspect Chauvin is a dead man walking. And the riots will commence in 3... 2...
The person driving this is Minnesota Attorney General Keith "There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his prophet" Ellison, so I suspect the GOAL is to have rioting. Ellison is a radical leftwing extremist. He intervened to get the charges upped against Chauvin, knowing full well that they could not make it stick.
This is a lose/lose situation. If Chauvin is found guilty a travesty of justice will have occurred. If he is acquitted there will be rioting. Either way is a loser from the perspective of civil society. Ellison knew that when he pushed for overcharging.
I've been reading Hannah Arendt's "Ideology and Terror." Mind boggling. From the beginning: "[Whenever a totalitarian government] "rose to power, it developed entirely new political institutions and destroyed all social, legal and political traditions of the country...[It] started to operate according to a system of values so radically different from all others, that none of our traditional legal, moral, or common sense utilitarian categories could any longer come to terms with, or judge, or predict its course of action."
Written in 1953, and containing unbelievable insights into our current situation.

True story: Our healthy but elderly neighbor, who was trim, still driving, going up and down stairs, taking care of herself and her house, took the COVID-19 vaccine. Two days after the 2nd shot she had a stroke. Five days later she was dead.
Under the Greens, Sweden is turning into a garbage heap.
From the article:
A fire started at the dump in a southern Stockholm municipality on Dec. 23 and continued for months, covering an area about 10,000 square meters, that included 100,000 tons of debris.
At first it seemed impossible to put out the Botkyrka blaze, because of the potential risk from landslides when covering the fire with sand or water, according to the local fire brigade. After months heavy equipment was finally used to begin to control the conflagration.
The flames will probably erupt again in this flammable mixture with warmer and dryer weather.
You might assume this trash tragedy is a result of some evil corporation, seeking greedy profits.
Proponents of the New Green Deal and the Club of Romehave united to change Sweden’s future into a "circular economy.” Goals include limiting GDP growth, recycling/reusing, promoting small economies of trades-persons and independent contractors, as well as limiting population growth, so allegedly the earth’s resources won’t be depleted.
One focus is to eliminate employer/employee relationships and replace them with contracted workers, who work a few hours for each of many small operations. The plan also promotes using foreign workers by moving populations globally, wherever cheap labor is needed.
Until this year Sweden boasted a flagship energy/recycling program that extracted electricity from waste, solving the problems of disposal and power shortage simultaneously. When new politicians took power this year, they decided to reduce energy production, as well as its use.
To begin this shutdown the government instituted an energy tax in January on the waste conversion to energy industry. That levy was steep enough to curtail production (the goal), but so onerous that it quickly put the processors out of business. That’s why the trash and garbage mountains are climbing in Sweden, instead of being recycled.
Under their strange new economy, Swedes now get circular spirit tax deductions for screwing together furniture, leaving clothes at dry cleaning and installing solar cells, according to author Henrik Nilsson
At the same time, a fully functional nuclear reactor is being shut down. The justification is that it is no longer profitable. This is because the government has introduced an energy effect tax, which is fully in line with the Green Party’s philosophy of either taxing or closing down.
To be effective over time, the circular economy needs the Internet of Things, with constant connection where all material flows and are followed in real time throughout the life cycle.
According to the philosophy, this should lead to a world without waste, since clothing, furniture, lighting, appliances and means of transport are not owned, but rented, which is giving producers incentives to make products more sustainable.
This would end most private property, and the big question becomes: who will own what we rent?
Under the circular system the source of goods must be either the government or an arm of the state. Since the goal is to minimize use of resources, that means rationing either by need or to satisfy Green New Deal objectives.
The Circular Economy goals are originally from Barbara Ward’s book Spaceship Earth (1966), where this planet is described as a closed system – a spaceship – with limited resources.
"Spaceship Earth – The Life Support System” is also the title of a chapter in the Rockefeller Brothers Fund’s 1977 publication "The Unfinished Agenda", a book advertised by the Club of Rome. This fund currently promotes more cordial relations with China, and advocates BDS activities against Israel, supporting "J Street” and its efforts to almost solely promote Arab interests in Mideast negotiations.This was the inevitable outcome of this economics of scarcity and control. We saw this kind of thing in the old Soviet days, with piles of trash and filthy air, a result of a society too stifled to clean itself up. It shouldn't surprise us.
What is surprising is so many are hell-bent on this future of poverty and despair.
Earth is not a closed system. We have enormous resources, and can invent/develop new ones. We also have an entire solar system chock full of wealth, waiting for us to come and get it. There is more metal in one medium sized nickel Iron asteroid than has been mined over the whole Earth in the last five years! Not long ago there was a twenty mile diameter nickel iron asteroid that would, if we were to mine it, wreck the world economy by collapsing the metals market. We are rich, rich, rich in our own backyard, yet these people want to make us poor, and limited.
So much of this thinking comes from the 60's and '70's, too, and much of what inspired it has been overcome or proven wrong, but we keep chasing these bad solutions. These people are still thinking along the lines of the Club of Rome's "Limits to Growth" and "The Population Bomb" none of which made a single accurate prediction.
We don't need any barbarians to destroy our world; we are the barbarians.
Coca-Cola has no room to talk about racism or voting, for that matter. In the 1930s, Coca-Cola built it's overseas empire in full support of Adolf Hitler and his NAZI regime.
Even after the NAZIs invaded Austria, Hitler was greeted with Coca-Cola Banners with the words "Sieg-Heil!, to commemorate our deepest admiration and gratitude for our Führer who has led our nation into a brilliant higher sphere.”
Several other American Companies also supported the Füher:
Chase Manhattan Bank
Brown Brothers Harriman
International Business Machines.
John Madric adds:
Because, just like now, they're able to recognize and get behind whatever movement they think will be successful. As a company, they kind of have that responsibility to their shareholders. They don't believe in this woke nonsense any more than they did in Hitler. But it was and is the better bet..
And don't forget they do international business - a lot of international business - and this pleases certain foreign customers (like the Chinese). The Chinese supported the current junta in power, and they backed BLM to sow chaos and wreck the budding MAGA movement. Coke wants to ingratiate themselves with China. Also, with the Europeans who have always thought themselves America's betters on racial matters .

There are a few problems.
While I’ve never met a Neanderthal, I suspect that our current society probably isn’t one that should be impugning their thinking. For example, whatever Neanderthals’ faults, they surely knew the difference between boys and girls and didn’t entertain fancies such as "Our strength lies in our diversity." This comes to mind with the controversy over mask-wearing and Joe Biden’s recent claim that easing apparently unnecessary COVID-19 restrictions is "Neanderthal thinking.”
From Sen. Tom Cotton:
The problem with most corporations are they see themselves as "citizens of the world" and not American. They have a fraternity of big money which they seek where the big markets are located. Things like voter i.d. laws are bad to them because they a.hurt Democrats, who offer the corporations protection and give them taxpayer money and b.places like China don't want a hard liner like Trump ever to be elected again and that hurts the corporate pocketbook.
I argued this point about George W. Bush years ago, that he had no problem with illegal immigration because he was essentially an internationalist and couldn't see what the fuss was about. OF COURSE we should bring in cheap labor from outside the country! Why wouldn't we? Bush made lots of money from profitable foreign parntnerships and he never understood that the average American saw his country being taken away and saw himself losing money and jobs.
This is how these big corporations view things - and why they will fight something like voter I.D. while support the Chicoms or other enemies of America who offer profit to them.
I don't think I've ever seen a big story die so quickly. A man drives through a security checkpoint set up to stop insurrection. Manages to kill one officer and badly injure another. But because he's a black follower of the 'Nation of Islam', 25 year old Noah Green and his motives are soon forgot. After all, we were told to fear white supremacists Trump supporters, not black nationalist Islamic anti-Semites.
This attacker has been forgotten, but the Democrats and the media are still spinning this as an attack on democracy to support their outrageous claims of 'insurrection' on 6 January 2021.
The following lengthy piece demonstrates how the brief illegal occupation of the Capitol building, which caused far less damage than the average BLM demonstration in the US, was deliberately overstated by democrats and the media. Particularly with regards the claimed violence and attempt at insurrection, and the continuously claimed death toll of the riot.
The Capitol area of Washington DC has been in security lock-down since a few hundred pro-Trump supporters along with a bunch of anarchists out for a day of rioting, broke into the Capitol building, occupied the Assembly, did some damage, and then left peacefully.
I make the point that they left peacefully of their own volition. There was no forced removal. Try to find any evidence of that? It didn't happen.
This proves the claim it was an attempted insurrection is a complete fallacy. Yet that is the story which those who control the narrative, the Democrats in power, and their big tech and media mates are sticking with.
It's on that basis, and at the cost of billions of dollars, they installed thousands of National Guard troops and razor wire fencing and security check points around the Capitol.
It was claims that there was intelligence of other planned attacks by pro-Trump, white nationalists, anti-government, which supported the continuing high security.
It was most likely simply a political ploy to continue besmirching Trump throughout the impeachment process and beyond the inauguration, effectively taking the attention away from President Biden's disastrous handling of the US border policy.
Leader of the House, Democrat Nancy Pelosi, is responsible for the Capitol security. Days before the so-called insurrection the FBI, and then President Trump's Administration, offered additional security in the lead up to and during the inauguration. But she declined the offer.
Now, she's justifying the Capitol lockdown and thousands of troops to stop anyone illegally entering the Capitol, but they couldn't care less about illegal entries at the border.
The so-called insurrection continues to be referred to, including the claim that five died during the insurrection.
Yes the continuous claim is that 5 people died, but that claim is a deception. The facts are, one unarmed woman involved in the riot was shot by an unidentified officer in the Capitol building whose life was not under threat.
One police officer died more than a day after the riot and his death has not been linked to the riot.
Three pro-Trump supporters died of natural causes while participating as part of hundreds of thousands of peaceful demonstrators who were never inside the Capitol building.
In the video linked below, taken by Antifa/Black Lives Matter agitator John Sullivan, who was part of the group who forced their way into the Capitol building, we can see the shooting.
On the left of screen you see the hand holding and aiming the gun from a doorway beyond the protesters. You see the gun fired and you see Ashli Babbitt drop immediately. She later died in hospital.
To watch the video, which has never been shown without censor on mainstream media, you'll need to sign in to your YouTube account as it's restricted to mature audiences.
The shooter has never been publicly identified or charged. A spokesperson for the Capitol police claims the officer has been placed on leave, but no charges will be filed. Capitol police investigators claim the officer "used clear appropriate use of force."
If this had been the shooting death of an unarmed black person there would have been riots around the country.
Also oddly, just seconds before the shooting we can see in this video, there were plenty of armed police and security personnel next to and behind the so-called insurrectors who had no guns.
The armed police made no attempt to stop the rioters who were breaking a window in the door. One gunshot fired into the ceiling would probably have been enough to get their attention.
Instead, remarkably, they simply left the rioters seconds before Babbitt was killed. Why did those police in sufficient numbers, make no attempt to stop the unarmed rioters?
Watch the video. I guarantee you haven't seen this on mainstream media. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=AZ9oThRuMVs&bpctr=1617645952
The Capitol was crawling with hundreds protesters and full of hundreds of armed law enforcement and nobody else got shot. The protesters fought the officers with improvised weapons and nobody else got shot. The protesters breached the House chamber and Congressional offices and nobody else got shot. Why did unarmed Ashli Babbitt get shot jumping through the broken window of a door, when cops weren’t even concerned that protesters where attempting to break through?
Babbitt was a decorated security forces controller in the Air Force and served multiple Middle East tours from 2004 to 2016. You'd think she would have recognised a situation where she thought she might get shot.
What of the police officer who House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called a martyr to the cause of democracy?
Police officer, 42 year old Brian Sicknick was involved in the riots and was sprayed in the face by a type of spray used to deter bears. But he died of a stroke and blood clot.
After the riots he texted his brother saying he was feeling fine. But he Collapsed about 10pm that night and died about 24 hours later.
The media first reported he was the police officer seen in a video who was hit on the head by a fire extinguisher. In fact that officer, who had a helmet on, was uninjured. The media and senior Democrat politicians are still implying he died as a result of injuries sustained in the attack.
On March 14, Khater, of State College, Pennsylvania, and Tanios, of Morgantown, West Virginia, were arrested and charged with nine federal counts associated with the riot, including assaulting Sicknick and two other officers (one Capitol Police officer and one Metropolitan Police officer) with a deadly weapon. The two men were also charged with civil disorder, obstructing a congressional proceeding, and conspiring to injure an officer.A federal magistrate Khater and Tanios were not charged with manslaughter or murder.
All of that information with citations from reliable sources, is available on Wikipedia.
The other three people said to have died in the Capitol riots were never inside the Capitol building and died of 'medical emergencies'.
- Rosanne Boyland, a 34-year-old Trump supporter from Georgia died after collapsing in the crowd attempting to gain entry to the Capitol building. Attempts were made to resuscitate her, but failed. She was visibly obese, and with pepper spray in the air and a crowd crush, she may have had trouble breathing.
- Greeson, 55, went to the 2009 inauguration of President Barack Obama, according to a ProPublica report. More than ten years later, the Alabama resident and Democrat had become a Trump supporter. He died of a heart attack outside of the Capitol.
- Phillips, 50, is said to have died of a stroke, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer. "It seems like the first day of the rest of our lives, to be honest,” he said in the report, on the drive to D.C. "They should name this year Zero because something will happen.”
When you know the facts about the deaths, only one was directly attributable to violence, and that was in the part of a Capitol police officer against the unarmed Ashli Babbitt, while dozens of armed police and security personal turned their backs.
Police officer Brian Sicknick death was likely a terrible coincidence and from natural causes.
The fact that three Trump supporters died in a crowd which some reports put at one million, is not surprising at all. Even completely peaceful events attracting so many people will mean some fatalities.
Many years ago I was a volunteer with St John Ambulance, qualified to administer emergency first aid. I regularly attended SAFL matches in the days when they attracted 20,000 spectators at times. People collapsed and died, or later died at hospital on a regular basis. But the media never ran stories about 'deadly' games blaming the deaths on one of the league sides.
Will the Democrats and media ever get over their Trump derangement syndrome?
He can't even read his tele-prompt. You can see his brain not computing what's on the screen he's straining to read. But he's not sharp enough to ad lib. Probably because he's not even thinking about what he's reading.
If Trump had done this, the mainstream media in Australia would have lead with it in their news bulletin questioning his competency. But this type of gaffe, which happens regularly, isn't even being reported in the IS by the MSM. That's because he's their candidate.
This is the leader of Western nations. The mainstream media anf social media hid Joe Biden's incompetence during the election campaign. Whoever is pulling the strings knows this guy will either stay in office as a complete puppet, or be replaced by the VP Kamala Harris.
Harris wasn't even popular with blacks. Obama gained 96% of the Black vote. In the polling during the Democrat presidential primaries, Kamala Harris polled behind Biden and Sanders among black Democrats, only just ahead of Elizabeth Warren. Yet the people controlling Biden chose Harris for Biden's running mate.
If she has a reputation for anything, it's being willing to do or say whatever it takes to get promoted or elected.
Harris lies a lot and it's not hard to tell.
Kamala Harris has a habit of launching into peals of laughter when she is asked questions, even serious ones. It’s likely a nervous tic, and it’s possible that she doesn’t even realize that she does it.
In this short video clip she reveals both her willingness to say anything to get where she wants, and her cackling as she evades the question. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=0iMYlJqsDcg
In the world of gambling, this is called a tell. An unconscious and often uncontrollable behavior that serves as a clue to others that a player is bluffing or lying. In real life, it's done to cover nervousness, and people are nervous either because they don't know the answer, or their answer is a lie.
She will make the ideal titular President. Being female and dark skinned gives her enough intersectionality points the media will never hold her to account. She say and do whatever those pulling the strings want her to.
This has serious implications for Australia. Do you think the leaders of China, Russia, North Korea, Iran will take a demented Biden or cackling Harris seriously?
The mad rush for Covid vaccines makes me wonder at the real reasons for this huge push. Given the fact that the disease is hardly unique in its mortality, I suspect there is more to this business than meets the eye.
Here is an article in which Dr. Tal Zaks, a bigwig at Moderna, warns that they are "hacking the stuff of life" with this.
From the article:
Dr. Tal Zaks, the chief medical officer at Moderna Inc., explained in a 2017 TED talk how the company’s mRNA vaccine was designed to work.
Over the last 30 years, he said,
"we’ve been living this phenomenal digital scientific revolution, and I’m here today to tell you, that we are actually hacking the software of life, and that it’s changing the way we think about prevention and treatment of disease.”
He went on to explain [see video below] that the human body is made up of organs and organs are made up of cells.
In every cell there’s this thing called messenger RNA or mRNA for short, that transmits the critical information from the DNA in our genes to the protein, which is really the stuff we’re all made out of.
This is the critical information that determines what the cell will do. So we think about it as an operating system.
So if you could change that, if you could introduce a line of code, or change a line of code, it turns out, that has profound implications for everything, from the flu to cancer.
They want to reprogram our genes.This is the very same dream as the eugemicists of the last century, only now they have amazing new tools to play God with.
Here is another article worth pondering from the same site.
Schwab stated just a few weeks ago that he believes "nobody will be safe” unless "everybody is vaccinated.”
It does not matter if a "vaccine” is experimental and still undergoing clinical trials, which is the case for all Wuhan virus vaccines currently being distributed. If the government says you should get it, then you have to get it, Schwab contends.
The other signatories have essentially declared that they believe the same thing. All injections, no matter their purpose or the risks involved, must be taken by all humanity in order for everyone to feel "safe” against scary germs from China or elsewhere.
We tag animals to study their population; I rather suspect that is what is about to happen to the "human animal" with this Covid vaccine business; they are going to tag us all and follow our movements. We know they are giving out vaccine cards now to prove you have had the shot; and Bill Gates wants a permanent implanted chip that can be scanned (aka the Mark of the Beast). And we know these people are eager to experiment with the human genome in their hubris and also most of them are Malthusians who want to reduce the world's population. I suspect that these articles are on the right track here.
At least as far as the Davos crowd are concerned. I suspect the politicians are doing what they do, going along to get along. This is what happens when you "follow the science" and put the people who are promoting a radical scientific agenda in charge.
Remember; scientists do not swear the Hippocratic Oath. They have a mild code of ethics maybe, but when has that stopped them from trying to play God? After creating the atomic bomb Robert Oppenheimer went on to express angst "I have become Shiva, destroyer of worlds". It didn't stop him from inventing the damned thing though. And this experimenting with the fundamentals of our DNA is in many ways more dangerous than nuclear weapons, which can only kill you. These monsters can enslave us all, or turn us into some sorts of Frankenstonian abominations.
